Dell Dimension 2400

Hi: My usb ports on this machine are not working properly. When i plug a memory stick or a camera in it says that the device is not working properly. But these devices all work on other machines. I've been told to uninstall all the drivers in the device manager and then reinstall them but i'm not sure how to do this with the key-board. When i uninstall these usb ports will i not loose the use of my Mouse? How do i shut the computer down and reboot without a mouse?

HELP!!!

    I put a flash drive into all of my usb ports and none of them are working. What should we do?

    i have the exact problem with the previous individual(s) with the same machine(Dell dimension 2400). It obviously appears to me that Dell has a known issue that particular PC and would'nt assist in resolving it without a high cost/charge.

    My sisters Dimension 2400 has a similar problem. USB mouse works fine, but 2 different known good USB keyboards will not work. Have moved the USB connectors and the problem remains with the keyboard. PS2 keyboard works fine though. Any ideas on how to get the USB keyboard going again?

You may want to temporarily connect a PS2 mouse (and keyboard if you wish)
The PS2 connectors are round, a purple one for the keyboard and green for the mouse.

If you have the original Dell disks that came with the system, one will be a driver disk (don't accidentally re-install windows from the other disk).

most drivers are available at:

My dell dimension 4600 is not recognizing my ipod shuffle


Does it recognize any other usb device you stick in the port?

Try a different USB Port, maybe the one you are using is bad.

Do you get a message saying your device will run faster if it was connected to a 2.0 USB device?

If so you could try updating to a 2.0 usb device which goes into one of the PCI slots inside the computer for less than $15.

Click the link below to purchase a 2.0 PCI USB adapter. when the site opens just type: PCI to USB Adapter in the white search box at the top of the webpage and hit GO. Sort the results by Prices Low to High.

How do I download contents of a memory stick in Cyber Shot DSC-W55 to my Mac


If you can connect an USB cable to your camera and then plug the cable into the USB port of your computer, it may see the camera and menory card as an external storage device and you maybe able to open the folsers on the memory card to download the photos.
If this does not work then insert the SD memory card into an USB reader and plug it into the USB port of your MAC. You can then open the memory folder to copy your photos to your MAC.

I have a Dell Dim 2400 and no connection with HP Deskjet 3070A.


Charles, has this combination worked previously, have you been able to print from your Dell Dimension 2400 to your HP Deskjet 3070A successfully?

If the answer to the above is Yes, then if you believe that the printer is still working correctly and you can test this with a different computer able to print to it, you should consider uninstalling and re-installing the HP software and device drivers for this printer.

If you have not printed to this printer successfully previously, have you tested the printer with a different computer and proven it is still working fine?

If the printer works fine to a different computer then providing you are using the same USB cable to connect to your Dell 2400, the problem needs to be narrowed down further.

Check that you can plus other USB devices into the port on the Dell used for the HP printer - if these work, then your USB port is good - if not, try another port if you have one.

If your USB hardware is good, then again you are left with the need to uninstall and re-install the HP software and device drivers - it may be worth trying to download the latest version of such software if available. HP tend to update their All-in-One software on a regular basis.

Sir ! when i atteched pendrive from usb port in hp530 laptop give error usb unreconizable


This can happen if the proper driver for this device is not installed or that the USB stick is damaged. If proper driver is not installed go to control panel-hardware-device manager & locate the device and update/reinstall the driver. If it still does not work plug your USB stick on any other computer & if it works then format it once & try again on your laptop.
